When I wake up, one of the earliest things I do is flip the spiral dated Bible verse calendar that my friend Sheila gave me. It’s one of those self-standing calendars so you’re sure to see it as it’s on display at all times.
The verse today came from Exodus 15:2
“The Lord is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation”
As I proceeded to go through my “God Time” of praise and thanks and worship and then reading the Bible, I noticed something.
My current personal Bible reading plan is to read a little of Psalms and then a little Old Testament and a little New Testament. I don’t have a certain amount I read because I’m going for quality not quantity.
I’m in Isaiah right now and I came to chapter 12 which said:
“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.”
Isaiah 12:2 KJV
I thought “hold up. That sounds familiar today.” I went and looked at the spiral calendar and sure enough.... same verse, different part of the Bible.
So, naturally I thought God is up to something so I’m gonna research this more.
The one major thing that I wanted to point out is the name of God as “Jehovah”
According to Bible commentators:
Jah, Jehovah. Jah is the contraction of Jehovah, and both signify his eternity and unchangeableness, which are a great comfort to those that depend upon him as their strength and their song.
My prayer is that you would let it sink in today if you haven’t before: Our God is unchangeable and eternal. That means that He IS our Living Water and the only well that never dries up.
All the places that we look for “water” to quench our souls will leave us more dry and parched. He is the only thirst quencher who continually supplies all our needs in every way!
“With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation” Isaiah 12:3
